March 5, 2019

The Alzheimer’s Association West Texas Chapter will host a community forum at Connection Christian Church.

The event is set to begin at 5:30 p.m. Thursday at 4241 Tanglewood Drive.

Residents from the area are invited to join, ask questions about the disease, share their personal experiences, learn about available resources and find out volunteer opportunities to support families affected by Alzheimer’s.

“We understand the importance of Alzheimer’s disease care and support programs and services in Ector County,” said Janet Cross, program coordinator for the Alzheimer’s Association West Texas Chapter, in a prepared statement. “Community Forums are hosted by the Alzheimer’s Association in communities across the country, where families are invited to come together with Association staff and volunteers to mobilize our community in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease.”
